About Jetlagged Comic
Jetlagged Comic is a satirical take on the world of commercial travel through the perspective of the flight crew. Colorful, clean-humored and fun, Jetlagged resonates with the lifestyles and the on and off the job quirks of flight attendants, pilots and frequent travelers.
Jetlagged Comic follows the lives of flight attendants Bev, Wanda, Rob and Kitty as they muscle through crowded aisles, target knees and elbows with the beverage cart and teach passengers how to open the lavatory doors. Every cartoon deals with real situations that happen daily in the world of commercial aviation. Jetlagged takes it one step further and adds a goofy and positive spin on an otherwise highly stressed out industry. Jetlagged Comic receives praise from fans for being a relatable and uplifting source of comic relief to get them through their day.
Jetlagged’s most popular character Bev is a senior, sassy, no-filter flight attendant who really should retire. She’s seen it all and takes no prisoners. Just make sure to stay out of her galley.
Wanda’s a frazzled working mom with two girls and an aloof husband. On the plane she attracts chaos, often finding herself in bazaar situations. She said she’d only fly for two years, but who’s counting?
Professional, kind and compassionate, Rob loves his job and it shows. He’s a perfectionist and likes to work first class. Generally the peace keeper, he’ll insert his calm demeaner whenever Bev starts “charming” passengers.
Young, bubbly and fresh out of training, Kitty’s nostalgic for the glamorous days of flying. Delusional of the job’s lack-of-glamour, this millennial is nonetheless the most upbeat and cheerful of the crew. She’s wanted to be a flight attendant since, like, forever, because she loves people and she loves to fly!
I am a cartoonist, author, illustrator and let’s not forget full-time flight attendant. I’m the author of two cartoon books Airplane Mode and Jetway Reunion. Writing and drawing Jetlagged Comic is so much fun. These days I work mostly from home while my cat tries to lay on me. Otherwise, I’m cartooning on layovers, between flights and on the jump seat. I’m a member of Cartoonists Northwest and the SCBWI. I live with my devilishly handsome husband and cat in Seattle, Washington.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I post your comics on my blog/site/facebook/etc?
As long as you’re not using my comics for commercial purposes, go right ahead! You don’t have to ask my permission. Just please don’t edit the comic, cut out my name or alter it in any way. I also really appreciate when you link back to my pages when sharing on social media!
- How do you make your comics?
I hand draw each one on 9” x 12” cardstock paper using pencil and ink. Then I scan, upload on my computer and finish coloring, sizing and adjusting using a Cintiq 13 HD in Photoshop. There is an original drawing for all my comics, which are also for sale. Contact me if you’d like to purchase one.
- Someone is stealing your work! What should I do?
First off, thank you. It’s awesome you want to help me out!
It’s OK for people and pages to share my work on social media. It’s only a problem when they are making money off it, like using my images to sell their own products, pretending to be me, or ripping me off by cutting out my name. If you see someone doing that in a post, the best thing for you to do is share my link and help give me credit. I’d really appreciate that.
- I have a cartoon idea! Will you draw it?
I love getting ideas from fans! But I can’t always promise I will draw it. I’m pretty picky about the subjects I write about and tend to choose topics that will resonate with many people. If your idea is super specific to your airline or job, then I probably won’t take it into consideration for public distribution. However, I do create custom cartoons and created "Jetlagged" illustrations from your photos. For more information and pricing, check out my Custom Cartoon Page and use this contact form to submit your custom cartoon idea.
- Why don’t you write more about pilots/agents/pax/ATCers/etc?
While I do from time to time write about these awesome work groups, I just don’t feel I’d be authentic in representing their voices like I can for the flight attendants. There are lots of pilot cartoonists out there, but none for the flight attendants. I am honored to be it! Please be my guest if you want to start a strip about gate agents, rampers or ground crew. If you do, let me know. I’d love to read it!
- We want to advertise our products/pay you to promote our stuff!
No thanks! I like things ad free around here. That’s why I started a Patreon page to let fans support the comic. However, I do offer cartoon sponsorship on my social media pages. If you'd like to sponsor a weekly cartoon please contact me for rates and terms.
- Do you ship internationally? And do you wholesale?
Yes! I ship my products all over the world. I also wholesale my books and select products. Please contact me for pricing and terms.
